Subject: alaskan fun mystery

IA does not fail to bring fun and good entertainment. I asked (along with some others I
quess) for more serials and T.G.A.M supplies just that. Generally, I don"t like Universal
Serials but this one is really great Saturday
afternoon fun. Milburn Stone is suprisely good
when all you ever saw him was gunsmoke. Again, thank you IA. Please more! (I am a serial addict).

Subject: Some Mysteries Are Better Left Unknown
Certainly the characters are pretty shallow in most serials. These folks pale in comparison to even comic book drawings. What is more painful is trudging through watching it. I have to admit I could barely get through the second chapter before realizing I'd had enough.
Though I have always enjoyed Milburn Stone, the hero, (Doc in Gunsmoke TV series) and Edgar Kennedy (comedy routines), they could not surmount the tawdry effort to make one believe the poorly written plot. I was still put off. Smilin' Jack would frown at this effort.

Subject: Great 'arctic' footage!
This serial is well written and acted. Arctic ice flows with great footage of polar bears, then the next episode - cowboys and explosions galore!

DO NOT PANIC, this is a THIRTEEN part serial, the last two parts are in the same download (Part 12).
